Scrip program

scripHow would you like to do your routine shopping AND generate revenue for the church at the same time, without it costing you anything additional? Checkout the gift card (also known as Scrip Program) monthly fundraiser at the church. Forms are available in the Narthex and on the desk outside of the office.

Gift cards are available for clothing, groceries, fast food, restaurants, department, drug and home improvement stores, gourmet shops, pet supplies, music, movies, sporting goods, toys, housewares as well as online shopping at and Zappos.

Gift card orders are due the third Sunday of the month and available for pickup on the first Sunday of the month.

You will not find an easier way to generate income for the church. All you need to do is buy and use the gift cards for stores where you do you routine shopping. It costs you nothing extra out of your own pocket and you receive the full value of the cards you purchase. The Scrip Program rebates a portion, typically 3-15% of the cost, to the church.
